Statement from Governor Hassan on Unanimous Senate Passage of Paycheck Fairness Act

CONCORD - Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement today on the Senate's 23-0 vote in favor of the Paycheck Fairness Act:

"Today's unanimous Senate vote to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act is an overwhelming, bipartisan affirmation of the principle that an equal day's work deserves an equal day's pay. This common-sense measure to help eliminate the pay gap between women and men will strengthen our economy and the financial security of working families across our state. I applaud the Senate for today's bipartisan vote and encourage the House to pass this critical legislation in order to help all of New Hampshire's workers earn a fair and equal paycheck."
